At Clare Dental we are committed to a professional and experience approach in maintaining good oral health for our patients with diabetes.
Here are some of the reasons why it is important to maintain regular visits if you have diabetes:
-Having diabetes places you at a greater risk of gum disease.
-Gum disease often goes undetected so it is crucial that you understand the signs and come in if you see any of the following:
-Red or swollen gums
-Bleeding when brushing or flossing
Below are several ways that you can help prevent gum disease:
-Brush your teeth twice a day
-Floss or use interdental brushes to clean between your teeth daily
-If you have dentures remove and clean then each night before you got to sleep
-Regular Dental visits
-Do not smoke
Please call us to schedule your thorough dental examination.
